Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #114: Mardi Gras

"Not even Katrina could stop Mardi Gras"

-Tony Scott

Hi Folks! As it turns out Alan and I didn't move after all! Actually, that's not accurate, we have moved twice in one week! I will explain fully in a post later this week, but needless to say the last couple weeks have been a HUGE ADVENTURE! Basically, last Monday was supposed to be our last day in the cottage in Berkeley. As we spent the day taking care of the final packing and cleaning, we were pretty much good to go, when the phone rang and our new landlord informed us that something had happened and he couldn't rent to us after all! It's a mess. A BIG MESS. Anyway I will share more details later, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I will be around to visit your entries per our usual schedule... I promise! Now, on to the assignment...


MARDI GRAS is this week, so put on your mask, grab some beads, and your camera, of course, and let's go to CARNIVAL! Anything associated with MARDI GRAS will work fine. Are you making a special MARDI GRAS inspired meal? Photograph it! Do you have a collection of beads from a MARDI GRAS past? Show them to us! You get the idea... lets get our party on!

Extra Credit: Title your photograph for this assignment!
